Manor Heath Park’s Walled garden is part of this nineteen acre Green Flag Award and Yorkshire in Bloom Gold Award winning park.

The Walled Garden was once used to grow flowers, fruit and vegetables for the former Manor Heath Mansion (you can read about the history of Manor Heath Park and the Mansion here) and is today used to demonstrate different types of gardening techniques of topical interest and bedding plant trials for Calderdale’s parks.

There are several sections in the walled garden:

The Container Garden demonstrates the different ways of displaying plants in pots and hanging baskets.

The Rock Garden is made from local sandstone and planted with specialist alpines and bulbs.

Herbaceous Borders using traditional plants for a magnificent summer flowering display.

The Necklace Garden boasts traditional plants and old-fashioned roses growing in a formal setting.

The Winter Garden features plants of winter interest including flowers, stems, foliage and berries; to illustrate how gardens can still be attractive in winter.

The Mediterranean Garden shows how plants normally found in the Med can be grown in Calderdale, with plenty of ideas for plants to grow in domestic gardens for the water conscious gardener. The gravel garden shows plants that will survive in hot, dry  places.
